into the emergency room with flu you like symptoms and they don't have the facilities to treat them all. and they want to keep distance between patients that don't have the flu. if people are severe is they bring them into the hospital but you if they are not severely ill with the flu they bring them outside to the mobile surge tent. >> the capacity was overwhelming. not only weren't patients being seen but also patients -- not only with patients being seen but a bed to be admitted. this s to decrease those who have milder flu symptoms we can see them and treat them and discharge them effectively and efficiently from the tent. >> pennsylvania is one of many states where the flu cases seem to be rising. 4300 of the 11,000 cases in pennsylvania occurred in the last week and 18 of the 22 deaths also in the last week. everyone sen couraged here to get the flu vaccine. it is well matched to the current strain. said to be 62% effective by the cdc. if your symptoms are mild, you don't necessarily need to go to the hospital. >> if you are are sick, please stay at home. if you -- please use prop
third lie." in the book professor gelles argues that the vast majority of government social programs don't work and suggests a different approach. this is about ten minutes. gls well, booktv is on the road. we're in philadelphia at the university of pennsylvania, and we're interviewing some professors who also happen to be authors. and we want to introduce you to the dean of the university of pennsylvania's school of social policy and practice. this is richard gelles on your screen. and one of his books, his most recent, is called "the third lie: why government programs don't work and a blue print for change." dr. gelles, i'm here from the government, and i'm here to help you. is that not true? >> guest: not true. >> host: why not? >> guest: because most government social programs which are designed to help people don't actually help. in some instances it is little more than the, i hate saying this, but the do-gooder full employment act. it provides lots of jobs for people who'd like the help, but at the end of the day if you look at whether the needle has been moved and people have real
that the neocons hold for us? >> i don't know if it's that stated, but it certainly is underlining a lot of what we're hearing about hagel now. a lot of the media attention has been on some of the past statements involving the jewish lobby as he called it, involving the gay ambassador to luxembourg, but those are sort of side shows. what this comes down to is the future of obama's foreign policy. chuck hagel in many ways represents the clearest break yet by this administration from the george w. bush era foreign policy. keep in mind the president continued a lot of these bush era programs. we haven't really had a substantive comprehensive conversation about what went wrong in iraq. chuck hagel's nomination represents a clean break. i think that's very scary for a lot of these neocons. >> let me go to peter. i have always respected the way your brain works. you think a lot, which is a good thing for a writer to do occasionally is to think. you think and you really change your mind, which is very refreshing. and i think you've wrestled with these issues of the middle east, and i guess the question is
standoff, the gunman and three people lay dead inside the home. the truth is we don't have the time to list all the shootings across this country over the last 24 hours. but we do have time to mention that just two days before the president's inauguration a coalition of gun rights activists are calling for a gun appreciation day. even before the task force has made a single recommendation, this coalition wants to organize against what they say is the president's post-sandy hook assault on gun rights. this is why the silence of those children killed at sandy hook elementary school must continue to speak loudly until action is taken in relation to gun safety and gun violence across this nation. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> the folks that brought you the iraq war. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. the folks who quack for iraq have a knack for bad ideas. they pushed us into war ten years ago, they made their case with lies and half truths and flimflam. we had to get revenge fo

as a result of a whole lot of activities by marketers that we don't even see or know about. and relating to a transformation in advertising that almost anyone except people in the advertising industry doesn't know about. >> host: what does that mean? >> guest: in the last 20 years, advertising has changed drastically with the rise of cable and then the internet. originally, advertising was making an ad, a commercial and then putting on just a few very popular media; newspapers, radio, magazines. with the rise of cable, all of a sudden you had hundreds of channels, and then with the internet it's infinite. but more so you have tingal stuff, and it -- digital stuff, and it becomes interactive. part of of what we know about is that we can talk back to the advertiser, we can click on manager, there's a -- something, there's a whole lot of stuff going on under the hood where data are taken from us, are used, and we become creatures that are created by the advertisers to understand us and then change what we see on the web very often -- this is going to happen more and more as we move forward

the criticism that the white house is secretive about the drone program. they don't talk about it and almost don't acknowledge it and clear that the president is committed to this and an issue from the left. >> david, as s.e. said, i think the left did not for most or all of president obama's first term really hold him accountable on drones the way maybe you would have expected them to do or tried to with the national security policies under george w. bush. it seem there is's a natural opportunity at least maybe to pursue some of the answers to ask some of questions that weren't asked the last four years in the hearings of john brennan as the cia director. is that something you expect will happen at all? >> i do. >> will there be some aggression of the left there? >> i think there will be. brennan is involved in the program and some of the stories today you are seeing looking and as people start to scour the records. regardless of whether he's confirmed or not, it's part of the discussion. however, i think like i said that obama is committed to john brennan. as his sort of adviser, the president

was no underwriting. this lender by the way saddled with the new york attorney general's office because i don't know of you guys remember, it was called the preferred lender list where you know lenders were in some cases accused of paying b-schools for preferential treatment and for them to steer students toward a particular loan products. that was the case with this lender. when you think about, you can sort of understand some of the anger and how a generation may rightly feel very duped in some ways and stock with very little relief at this point now that they are so far in debt. >> now a look at the tenure and legacy of house speaker john boehner. we will show you as much of the "washington journal" segment as we can until the richard nixon 100 birthday gala in about half an hour. >> host: on wednesday here in the "washington journal" in our last hour taking look at a recent magazine piece. we are joined by robert costa at national review to talk about a couple of pieces you have written. we will start with the most recent.

of the commonsense things that everybody fwraes with, including nra members and gun owners, you don't hear any republicans at all talking about coming to the table, and when rush limbaugh made the comment about, you know, it won't be long before you hear moderate republicans talking about how this is hurting them with women, actually you don't hear any moderate republicans saying that. you know, unless some republicans come to the table in the house, it is frightening how little we might be able to do on gun safety. >> bill, let me interject. there are four suburban republican congress mn in the philadelphia area. i wrote an op ed piece for one of our newspapers, and i challenged them to stand up and say are they for us, their constituents, or for the nra? they're going to have to vote. they're going to have to declare themselves. if they declare themselves on the side of the nra, they're finished. they will be defeated in 2014. >> the question is whether or not you can build a coalition big enough of the very small number that is moderate republicans to even get a bill to the floor in the hou
can't nail him, if there's just suspicion, i don't think you should dock him, obviously. >> no. there's a cloud around everybody. we do have to figure out what to do. now you've got the all-time home run king, all-time hit king, a guy who won seven cy youngs in roger clemens will probably never be in the hall of fame. a guy like mark mcgwire. >> put it on the plaque. put it on the plaque. >> no, no plaque. no nothing because they aren't. >> the steroids era. >> there you go. >> first of all, that would be the biggest construction project in the history of cooperstown. >> true. good point. >> because the game was replete with steroids for a period of perhaps as many as 20 years. but certainly for 10 to 15 years. just put it on the plaque with bonds and clemens. here's what happened with them. here's what they admitted. here's what they were charged with. whatever. put it on the plaque. >> you know what my problem is, though? and maybe this is personal with me. i was born in atlanta, georgia. i grew up, hank aaron was my idol. hank aaron was a remarkable man, decent, humble, mobile, ala
would not have had a green job. if they installed regulatory, they don't have green jobs. if the install low flow toilet, they have green jobs. farmers, if they grow corn for ethanol, they have a green job. if they grow corn for ethanol and corn for people to eat, they have a green job. if they just grow corn for people to eat, even though they are farms, they don't have green jobs. salvation army workers, if they recycle used clothing, then they have green jobs, too. well, there are 4665 people who produce renewable energy and utility companies, according to the bureau of labor statistics. they just report which came out in april. they are clearly green but you have to ask, are they making energy more expensive or are they making it less expensive. well, it's clear that they're making energy more expensive. the average level has cost entering service in 2017 according to the department of energy is it there till by natural gas which cost $66 per megawatt hour, for wind, $96 per megawatt hour, for solar power, $153 per megawatt hour. well, five years ago in 07 when the energy loan guaran
in a constitutional convention as a moderate in montgomery alabama in february of 1861. i don't think he ever did stand for election. one of the things americans think, one of the things they're told, the confederate constitution was a replica of the u.s. constitution, but it was not. a number of crucial changes, and one of them was they had a one-term executive, and i believe it was 5-year executive term. he avoided reelection. >> professor mccurry, did -- was there a lot of political infighting during the war? >> yes. there was. and there were no for more -- for all political parties. one of the things that is interesting is that it so quickly became on the ropes that a lot of things that were planned never really materialized. and there was political opposition, but it was theoretically everybody was a democrat. there was no republican party. no republican party ticket offered in the south. you could not vote for lincoln. but there were all lined with the southern wing of the democratic party. during the war opposition arose, and some were profoundly opposed to the davis administration, on ver
victims in this case. >> to run back to one of your points, we don't know if the shooting happened on campus and in one of the classrooms or nearby. this happened as you mentioned with the shooter, we don't know if he was a student. >> i think that's an important point to make. early reports, we know that it's a shooting at taft union high school. we are trying to sift through to understand whether it happened in the school itself or whether it happened outside the school. we can confirm that there victims in this case and the police department -- >> injuries. thank goodness. nothing worse than that. let us know if you find out more. >> we will. >> happening now, the most controversial here and perhaps confrontational meeting, joe biden will have as his task force figures out what it do to curb gun violence. here he was. vice president and his group talking with the national rifle association representatives. that is happening right now at the white house as i speak. earlier he talked with sports men and hunter groups and all of this talking according to the vice president he said
with that fact, will you? it's his job to defend this country. and he's done a pretty good job of doing it, don't you think? well, the commander in chief said today he wants a former vietnam enlisted guy to be his secretary of defense, a guy who can't walk through an airport metal detector and not get reminded of the shrapnel he took in that sad but heroic american war. the president wants chuck hagel in that post because he thinks like him and has proven he's got the brains to protect this country. hagel long ago proved he's got the heart. don't you think? i don't hate the people trying to stop the president from picking this guy for the job he needs done at the pentagon, but i do recognize their tactics. they're the same ones they used to push the war in iraq. they say they don't like something he said hagel did 14 years ago about a gay man being put up for ambassador. i don't like it either, but, a, it was 14 years ago, and, b, i don't think it's got anything to do with why the hawks are opposing him. since when is the right wing of this country is caring for gay rights? as bill clinton woul
of sending a message to washington, we don't care what you do. things are going to stay the way they are here in wyoming and not only that, but if you pass some law banning semi automatic guns and magazines and try and arrest somebody, we're going to arrest you, and charge you with a felony. chase going on here? >> well, megyn, you remember when we had the obamacare stuff, the president's health care law, we've had states across the country pass constitutional amendments saying you cannot mandate the citizens of that state to purchase health insurance and we're going to see the tests on that play out in the months and years to come and we've seen states rebel against the law by opting out of the medicare or medicaid provisions of it. we saw that before and now we'll see it again and we're preparing again to see states push back on this. and in this case, it's the response is going to be even more intense because you're dealing with black and white, you're dealing with what the second amendment says. this is a clear discussion where half-- not half, but a huge number of americans believe that
executive action if you're ever going to do it it, maybe now would be the time. >> alisyn: i don't think you need to. >> tucker: what you don't want if you're the president is to have a national debate on the subject because there's no evidence, never been any evidence, i mean data evidence, social science that shows at that guns control reduces crime. if you would get it through congress you would have adults talking about it in public and that's messy and unfortunate and difficult. >> what we want. >> tucker: it's easier to force through on executive order. >> alisyn: we shall see if that's what their plan is and we'll talk more about what the center for american progress proposed. you know the story of the journal news, at that published the names and addresses legal gun owners our own judge jeanine pirro was on that list, last night on her show, she just-- well, first what she did was send one of other producers to the journal news to try to get answers for why they did this. let's see what happened when the producer showed up. >> why won't you talk to us? can you tell me why you guys re
." that was the sherman like statement you issued. >> that's, well, i'm not quite up to sherman's standards and i don't think i'm quite ready to lay waste to georgia either. but a good, good man i admire actually. >> but the grassroots campaign in your behalf, unofficial, was serious. i mean, over 235,000 people signed on. you broke their hearts. any regrets? >> no, because i probably have more influence than i, doing what i do now than i would if i were inside trying to, you know, do the court power games that come with any white house, even the best, which i don't think i'd be any good at. so no, this is fine. and what the president needs right now is he needs a hardnosed negotiator. and rumor has it that's what he's got, so. >> in jack lew? >> that's right. the president can't pass major new legislation. he can't formulate major new programs right now. what he has to do now is bargain down or ride over these crazy people in the republican party. and we what we need now is not deep thinking from the treasury secretary. if the president wants deep thinkers, he can call joe stiglitz, he can call othe
with a group of pennsylvania deer hunters. if you don't believe me, go see the movie, "deer hunter." it's a classic. so i'm confident closing the gun show loophole, gun safety and doing something about those high-capacity gun clips. it's going to be something reasonable hunters and second amendment fighters will find sensible. the more people have a say in writing the law, the better the law, the fewer the people, the worse the law. big corporations, for example, shouldn't write corporate fax law. and gun owners shouldn't be the only people involved in gun law. anybody can be shot by a gun, killed by a gun and they all ought to have a say. all of us should make gun law, not just the gun people. so let's go at it and please don't, please don't lose interest. this is a test of strength. keep your grip on this gun safety issue. the other side is still into keeping theirs, you know, with their cold, dead hands. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris: and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the v
basic freedoms. >> wow, shed blood to stop gun safety. i don't think so. we're not going to let the voices of violence and extremism get in the way of this debate, not this time. >> i'm telling you that if that happens it is going to spark a civil war and i'll be glad to fire the first shot. i am not letting my country be ruled by a dictator. i'm not letting anybody take my guns, if it goes an inch further, i'll start killing people. >> start killing people? i mean this is vile, this is ugly stuff. they are in full freakout mode. but we are serious people wanting real change, the threats are all behind us now. people behind newtown, connecticut, to chicago, illinois, are standing up and saying no. this time is different, this time we wouldn't back down. this time we're not going to let the threats stand in the way of progress and protecting our kids. with me now, e.j.deon, "the washington post" contributor. this week he wrote about people getting on board with gun control. and melissa harris-perry, joining me. >> good to be with you, and melissa. >> what are you looking at, we'r

people. so let's go at it and please don't, please don't lose interest. this is a test of strength. keep your grip on this gun safety issue. the other side is still into keeping theirs, you know, with their cold, dead hands. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris: and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the vice president will see you now. today, at the white house, we've got the latest evidence the obama team is serious about changing the way we handle guns in this country. ahead of today's key meeting, the nra vice president -- ahead of today's meeting with the nra, vice president biden assured the country, action is on its way. >> there's got to be some common ground here to not solve any problem, but to diminish the probability of what we've seen in these mass shootings. >> there's a real tight window to do this. i've committed to him. i could have these recommendations to him by tuesday. >> recommendations hit the president's desk in five days. now is the time to get this done. the vice
with this administration. first of all on what would make a difference. we don't think a ban on so-called assault weapons which hasn't worked in the past will work this time. >> one of the major pieces the vice president appears to be focused on is not the assault weapons ban but background checks. >> there's a surprising -- so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. not just close the gun show loophole but total universal background checks, including private sales. >> and the "washington post" reports today the white house is at least considering an nra proposal to fund police in schools, that's something now being pushed by democratic senator barbara boxer. i want to bring in "washington post" columnist ruth marcus and ryan grim. good to see you both. >> good morning. >> the nra said and i'm quoting here, we were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the second amendment. ruth, nobody thought the nra would come out of this meeting and say we've totally changed ou
, you know, colorado is a big hunting state. and i don't think anyone that i have ever met that is a responsible gun owner can side with these, you know, for lack of a better word, these loony tunes who are out here because they're doing something different. they're stockpiling. they're getting assault rivals. these are not i don't rememberal gun owners. what you're hearing from now is the absolute fringe, and, unfortunately, they're being allowed to speak for the pro second amendment crowd. >> david, we're going to show the worst of the worst in a minute but first your thoughts. will the regular gun owners, the people that are in the nra in pennsylvania and they vote, democrat or republican, are they going to go with the crazies like james yeager? we're going to show him and alex jones again. >> you know what's crucial to this is what clinton did back in '94. remember, he got an assault weapons ban through congress over the nra opposition and opposition to many republicans and some democrats and the way he got it was by bringing the cops, the police -- >> but how many seat

instead be mostly on treating the mentally ill. >> i don't think there are gun control measures that could have prevented the newtown killings or most other mass measures. the key measure we could adopt is to prevent the dangerously mentally ill from getting firearms in the first place. that's where some of the key solutions will come, i believe. >> new york's democratic governor andrew cuomo wants to roll out new gun control measures tonight, according to wcbs news. the report, govern cuomo would like to announce new restrictions on assault weapons and high-compass parliamentary inquiry magazines as well as -- high capacity magazines. >>brian: thanks for the live report. the president has nominated a couple of people, new c.i.a. guy, brennan and hagel to be his defense secretary. we've talked in the past a little bit about brennan's problems. it's very clear that hagel could actually be the most divisive nomination fight in the senate since, what was it, 20 years ago when president george herbert walker bush nominated tower for defense secretary. >>brian: he didn't get it. >>steve: he abs

're at a disadvantage? >> they're at a huge disadvantage. they expected this to happen. i don't know how far -- they were all focussing on 2015. we'll see. >> and wouven my resolutions was i was going to start stepping out a little fashionwise. so i put this on today. it's not white. it's not blue. it's pink. and i am trying to set some new ground for myself and then -- i mean, i look at that thing that -- why are you on me? why are you on me? who is directing? >> go to andrew. thank you. >> it's a gray shirt. >> can you get any closer on that? >> it looks better -- you have to see the pattern. and then the collar itself, that's one of four different collars you can have on that shirt,ite? that comes off, right? >> no. >> that's one of those detachable. >> i think it does look better on camera. >> it's okay. >> when i look at it on camera, take another shot from andrew's head on. >> does it steal my thunder, sort of? >> it looks better on camera. it really does. >> that's a backhanded compliment. >> no, but we talk about that all the time. it looks better on camera. that looks good on camera
they are going at it through the money angle. very, very smart process, but i don't think -- they're not staying true to the second amendment. >>steve: you mentioned the current attorney general and his sound bite from back in the 1990's. here is eric holder talking back in 1995 about gun control. think about what he said then and how it applies now. >> what we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that's not cool. it's not acceptable. it's not hip to carry a gun anymore. in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes. when i was growing up, people smoked all the time. both my parents did. but over time we changed the way in which people thought about smoking. now we have people who cower outside of buildings and smoke in private and don't want to admit it. >>alisyn: that was his feeling in 1995. we don't know if that is still eric holder's feeling is today. if there is any common ground, what they've said they all agree on is that the background checks need to be better. even the guns -- the n.r.a. felt that
as well or will it just stay high now for the rest of the flu season? we don't know the answer to this. also this particular strain. it's h3n2 just appears to be a more severe strain. we've seen this before. it was severe then, it's severe now. more people having significant sickness as a result. >> every year around this time you hear two things. people saying every time i get a flu shot it makes me sick so i'm not going to get a flu shot. or they say i never get a flu shot and i'm healthy and so i'm not going to bother getting a flu shot. so as a doctor, what do you tell them? >> the flu shot is not perfect. it's about 60% effective. there's another flu virus going around not included in this shot so it's much better than nothing. it takes a couple of weeks for your immunity to build up after you get the flu shot so you're not protected right away. here's an important point and i think you and i have talked about this before. when you get a flu shot, what the body is doing is sort of ramping up the immune system. so it's recognizing that virus so that if it sees the virus again, it c
